FaceTite in London
Do you want to lift the saggy skin on your face and jowls, but aren’t quite ready to undergo a facelift? FaceTite is the solution.
FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure which uses radiofrequency to tighten the skin, making you appear more youthful and rejuvenated.
Facelift-like results without surgery
FaceTite improves skin laxity in the face and neck through the use of radiofrequency energy.
This involves inserting a fine handheld device beneath the skin, which emits heat, lifting the skin on the face.
FaceTite is able to treat numerous areas of the face, including the double chin, jowls and any area of the face where there are fine lines and wrinkles.
You may wish to combine FaceTite with liposuction, which will allow excess fat to be removed from beneath the chin.
While this is a minimally invasive procedure, it is able to achieve results similar to more invasive cosmetic surgeries.
There are numerous advantages to undergoing FaceTite, including:
- You will be left with no visible scars
- The skin on both your face and neck will be tightened
- Volume to the cheeks will be restored
- Facial folds will be reduced
- No use of a general anaesthetic

Crisalix 3D imaging
Unique to Centre for Surgery, we are proud to offer the amazing Crisalix 3D imaging experience to all our patients. Visualise in incredible detail how your could look after your FaceTite procedure.
Crisalix 3D imaging is offered as standard at your FaceTite consultation.
FaceTite is performed as a day procedure, so you will not need to stay overnight in the clinic.
Prior to starting the procedure, the surgeon will mark out the areas to be treated on your face and neck.
Next, you will be given a local anaesthetic. This will mean that you will still be awake for the entirety of the procedure. However, the area being treated will be numb, so you will be unable to feel any pain or discomfort.
Once the area is numbed, small incisions will be made under the chin and on either side of the face.
The FaceTite device is then inserted beneath the skin. While this is occurring, you may feel some tugging and hear some ‘popping’ sounds, which is completely normal. This means the subcutaneous tissue is being heated. This will be undertaken on both sides of the face, as well as three areas of the chin.
Once each area has been complete, liposuction may be undertaken to remove any excess fat and help to give extra definition to the jaw.
You can also combine FaceTite with Morpheus8, which removes the top layer of the skin with a combination of microneedling and RF energy.
Following the procedure, it is normal to experience swelling, which may last for one week. During this period you may also experience tenderness in the neck.
You may feel some numbness in the treated areas. This can often last for a few months.
You may need to take two to five days off work. This timeframe will vary depending on the type of employment you undertake and how well you are responding during the recovery period.
You will need to wear a compression garment for the first 48 hours following the FaceTite procedure. This will not only help to reduce swelling but will give extra support to the face and the neck.
During the first 48 hours, you should avoid vigorous physical activities. You should also avoid wearing makeup while the compression garment is still on.
You may notice some results straight away, however, over time the skin will continue to restrict and results will improve. Results will become more obvious after four months. Some people will notice an improvement in results for up to 18 months.
FaceTite before and after
What is FaceTite?FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure which uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift the skin on the face and the jowls. This will leave you with a more contoured jawline and a rejuvenated face.
What is the difference between FaceTite and a facelift?A facelift is a surgical procedure which involves incisions to make the skin on the face tighter.
FaceTite uses a small handheld device which is inserted beneath the skin. This works to remove excess fat and tighten the skin.
How is FaceTite performed?Before undergoing treatment, you will be given a local anaesthetic, which will numb the treatment area.
Next, small incisions will be made under the chin and either side of the face. The small handheld device will be inserted beneath the skin. The subcutaneous tissue will be heated in numerous areas. Once this is done, liposuction may be undertaken to remove any excess fat and give you extra definition.
Will FaceTite hurt?Before undergoing the procedure, a local anaesthetic will be injected into the treatment area. This will prevent you from feeling any pain during the procedure.
When the device is inserted, you may feel some tugging and you may hear noises, however, you will not feel pain.
Will I have to wear a compression garment?You will need to wear a compression garment for the first 48 hours. This will help to reduce any swelling, avoid fluid build up and keep your face and neck in the best shape possible.
How long will I need to take off work?You may need to take between two to five days off work. This will vary depending on what type of job you have and how well you are recovering.
When will I be able to notice the results?You will be able to notice some results immediately after the procedure. However, over time as the swelling goes down and the skin becomes tighter, results will become more visible. Results will be obvious by the four-month point. Some patients have found results will continue to improve for up to 18 months.
Can I combine FaceTite with other procedures?For more enhanced results, you may wish to combine FaceTite with other procedures such as a topical therapy therapy facelift or Fractora RF Microneedling.
